Addo cam goes black from about 12 to 5am (unless someone is there with a spotlight :thumbs_up: )

Is there any chance we could get light on the waterhole throughout the night :pray: :pray: :gflower:

Dear Melph68

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

We will speak to our maintenance guys to go check the light at the waterhole and fix it.

It's so good to have Orpen back online :D :D
Thank you to all :gflower: :gflower:

But something seems to be obscuring part of the spotlight creating a shadow over the left hand side of the waterhole.

Any chance we could get it adjusted please :pray: :pray: :k

Thanks for fixing the problem at Orpen Webcam :thumbs_up:

Could it be possible that the spotlight gets tilted a little towards the waterhole, for a better view of the waterhole. :pray:

Thank you Orpen cam team for adjusting the spotlight :gflower: :gflower:

It is better, but as you can see there is still a shadow to the left of the waterhole, so could we possibly ask for a little more adjustment please :pray:

Image

Also, as vinkie points out, it would be so good to have more light on the waterhole :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:

We can hardly see the animals at the back of the waterhole at night on this wide-angle setting

Really appreciate the time you take to improve the viewing experience for us cam addicts :thumbs_up: :wink:

Please be aware that we will be doing a scheduled downtime at 11am SAST on Tuesday 25th November for 1 hour in order to move the forums database to a new powerful server to alleviate bottlenecks, provide increased processing power for the forum.

The forum has grown in leaps and bounds since our last infrastructure change and with us doing this change, are allowing more growth potential to the forum as well as streamlining the current users and load the server has.

Downtime details:

Date: 25th November 2014
Time: 11am SAST
Duration: 1 hour (Forums will not be available during this time, including the mobi version)

We will monitor the forums for the period after the change, and in the event of any technical issues that require us to revert the change we will have minor data loss (Any new data posted to the forums after 12pm) to the rollback.

If you have any queries / questions or concerns, please drop me a mail at steven.macintyre@sanparks.org

Regards,

Steven

If I could have any 10th forum birthday wish granted it would be to have more light on the waterholes so we can see the animals better.

Pretty please SANParks :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray: :pray:
